Jesse James is apparently well over his ex Sandra Bullock: he's asked tattoo artist Kat Von D to marry him (and she said yes).

"You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times," James told People magazine. "2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend. An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs.

"I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f----n' blast!"

The couple started dating last summer; Bullock and James' divorce was finalized last June. In January, James began to display some public displays of Twitter affection, writing on Jan. 9, "I have never felt so loved! I'm the luckiest MoFo in the world!"

And three days later, James told the tattoo artist that "48 hours away from you feels like a year ... you will never be anything but beautiful to me."
